NPC: Jollibee data breach affects 11M customers

MANILA – The National Privacy Commission (NPC) on Monday said it has been notified by food giant Jollibee Group about the unauthorized access to its data, affecting 11 million data subjects who are mostly customers.

In a statement, the NPC said sensitive personal information, including dates of birth and ID numbers of seniors, has been compromised.

The NPC got the notice from Jollibee on June 22 at 11:38 a.m.

“Other impacted brands include Mang Inasal, Red Ribbon, Chowking, Greenwich, Burger King, Yoshinoya, and Panda Express,” the NPC said.

Jollibee Foods Corporation has requested 20 more days to complete its internal investigation, the NPC said.

Jollibee Group is the latest among businesses to have reported a data breach.

Earlier this month, carmaker Toyota and real estate firm Robinsons Land have also reported data breaches.

The NPC said those who believe they are a part of any data breaches are advised to contact the data protection officers of their firms and report it to commission. (PNA)
